recipe Potato in hot sauce

My 2 cents..
I personally wouldn't put potato in any sauce that is not consumed right after opening. Potato gets moldy real fast and products that I have used, Pesto etc. have gotten moldy real fast that have Potato included..

Once the sauce is acidified (proper pH) it's preserved. What you are basically saying is use ketchup fast because it has tomatoes.

Perhaps be careful of any "bits" that may not be acidified, and make sure the potato is fully incorporated.

Interesting thoughts DF. I blend the snot out of this, cook and pass through a fine mesh strainer. I’ve kept the mash that didn’t pass through the strainer in a Tupperware on the counter. Let’s see how it fares over the next few weeks - that’s if I don’t eat it all before then!

'FINISHED EQUILIBRIUM ' is what the PAs reference.


From what i know, it takes 24 hours for a sauce to get settled, aka finished equilibrium,.

Think of making pickles. Cukes (high ph naturally) are put in vinegar solutions, and it takes 2 weeks for the cukes to be infused with vinegar which makes them pickled.


If the cukes would be tested for pH 1 week in, the cukes would fail the pH test.

SL, great info. I didn’t check pH after bottling but I will do tomorrow. I’m assuming it’ll be enough time for it to settle.

So what? Tomatoes grow mold too. Almost all the ingredients. A properly made hot sauce is fine. At this point this sounds like fear mongering.

The ketchup is a big hit - my wife and daughter love it and have stopped using regular ketchup. Although they don't think it tastes like ketchup, so they have named it "Not Ketchup".

Anyway, the logical progression for me is to ferment the potato with the peppers so let's see what happens to this lot:
